Imagine the thrill of feeling like you are soaring above your yacht or following fish around your boat with a pair of video goggles. Newport, Rhode Island-based seaHEX is set to introduce a water-resistant, radio-controlled, multi-rotor copter to yacht owners, charter fleets and offshore fishermen. Designed by Andrew Argenio and Jeremy Waltzer (specialists in drones and unmanned aerial vehicles) with a carbon-fiber body built by Hall Composites and control systems by DJI and seaHEX, the drone is equipped with a GoPro Hero3 HD camera for spectacular aerial photos and video. Retailing for $5,980, the seaHEX includes video goggles for real-time “eye in the sky” views. You might have seen and heard the buzz (literally) at the 2014 Palm Beach International Boat Show where the flying prototypes hovered overhead filming the show and passersby.
